Well I have been sitting on a number of projects since the beginning of the year more or less, cos
they were for this http://www.decoart.com/helping-artist/cathryn-wood/
So now I can begin to show you some pictures - this one is called -
The clock of the long dark night brings no relief to the tortured soul
I think I must have been a bit depressed when I did this cos the title is enough to make you slit
your throat! (laughing!)
Robs and they can be uninspiring - so for this one I decided to make
it into a coffee table clock.
First of all I made a nice hole in the top of the box to take the clock workings - then painted it
black. Then textured it through a mask - both the front, inside the lid and the spine of the "book".
The sides were painted Antique White and then using 1:1 Glazing Medium and Raw Sienna
the pages were put on using a fan brush.
The cogs were faux rusted and then the inside I built it up to look as though it had been hollowed out.
pages help - to be fair there is tons of work in this and if you look closely you will see crackle
glaze, mica powders, metal lustre, mona lisa powders, floating shadows and highlights,
calligraphy - the whole kit and whatsit!
